Enjoy a day full of adventure as we begin with The Train Lady, as she invites you on a one-of-a-kind experience at Wandering Tree Estates. Stroll the herbaceous border gardens, relax at the Japanese Garden and watch her stunning model train layouts glide through the botanical gardens within this hidden Barrington private treasure. After, enjoy a delicious lunch at the Onion Pub with your choice of soup and entrée. Finish the trip at Sanfilippo Estates, a docent-guided tour through the American Orchestrion Room, with some of the most beautiful art glass-front orchestrions ever made. Then on to the Victorian Bar room with stops in the Music Theater for a mini-concert and finally to the building that houses the Eden Palais Carousel. Thus, ending with some of the most exquisite music machines in the world. Moderate walking involved with this trip. Registration deadline: August 23 (spaces permitting).
